How to deal with macro variables with remote submission

I have a code that I can execute in my local machine without any problem. Now I want to submit my code to the remote server for executing. I need to make a some adjustments. In my code I have many macro variables defined using %let. As well as some dataset in my local machine. To submit the code to remote server, I have the following paragraph.

%let wrds=wrds.wharton.upenn.edu 4016;

options comamid=TCP remote=WRDS;

signon username= xxxxxx;

rsubmit;

some codes

endrsubmit;

My question is where I should put my defined macro variables as well as dataset.

Thanks.

Re: How to deal with macro variables with remote submission

The question is where do you want your macro variables to be resolved? On your local machine, your remote server, or both?

I suggest you explore the %SYSLPUT and %SYSRPUT macro statements. They allow you to assign macro variables between local to remote SAS sessions.
